    The purpose of Personal Finance is to provide children with a solid background in money matters by offering a brief overview of fundamental financial topics. The book starts off with the exploration of career choices and then progresses to banking issues generally related to checking and savings accounts. The remaining content of the book covers the following topics: various types of insurance (auto, life, and property), investing in stocks and bonds, decision making in large purchases like a car or home, and the various classes of taxes (income, employment, sales, and property). Although the majority of the topics included in this workbook are not new to children, the extensive collection of hands-on assignments allow the child to develop a better understanding by applying the concepts to his personal experiences. After completing the exercises in this book, your child will know how to perform important real-life activities such as writing a check, reconciling a bank account, preparing a budget, and filing an income tax return. This workbook is consumable with limited classroom reproduction rights. Answers are included. ~ Enh

       Everything you want to know about money, all between the covers of this 256-page book. Presented in a visual and textual format, learn about taxes, banking, investment houses, stock markets, hedge funds, inflation, pensions, coinage, and financial culture. You will read about key figures in economics, history and learn interesting facts about how countries cope with debt, interest rates, credit ratings, and money vs happiness. I avoided writing this description because I didn’t think this would be that engaging, but found that I didn’t want to stop reading after I started. Although I’m sure some of the statistics were outdated shortly after printing (2013), the presentation is fascinating. This book would just be a good resource for anyone who wants to understand a monetary system better. Did you know that the concept of credit has been around since Louis XV, a dollar will buy 8 cups of milk in Kenya, and money from Keno slips help build the Great Wall in China. The publisher touts this as a jargon free publication, but you will be introduced to a lot of new vocabulary. “Jargon Free” means that they give you the meaning of those words right on the same page they are used. You will also find a glossary at the back.  

      This book could be used as a supplement to your economics course, or just as a shelf reference. The explanations might help parents understand financing and the mechanics of the system a little better too. ~ Donna

    From the moment you pick up this book - if you're a Christian homeschooling mom – you'll know that this woman has a message for you, or rather that God has a message for you through this woman. Whether it's debunking the lies we tell ourselves (you're the worst example of a homeschool mom) or it's confronting the traps we all face (comparisons, etc.) you sense immediately that Tamara Chilver has walked this path ahead of you and can give you the message you need at that moment. And, interestingly, the message is simple – God's grace is sufficient. He has called you to this task. He will provide the ____ (fill the blank: courage, time, rest, finances, creativity) to bring it to glorious completion. You'll need this book; you'll need this message; if not now, then sometime soon. Keep it close! 81 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    As a senior finance major at the University of Illinois, I was suitably impressed by the amount of information presented in this workbook. Written in an easy to read format, the book allows the beginning investor to learn the basics of investing in the stock market. Various investment vehicles such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds are introduced as well as the reason that one would want to invest in each particular security. A history of the stock markets and how they function are also covered. Various games, puzzles, and worksheets are included throughout to reinforce concepts, and extension activities are provided to encourage students to conduct deeper outside research. Directions for a simulation stock market game are included. Everyone should have a basic understanding of the financial markets, and this book does a great job of introducing this information. While most of the concepts covered pertain to world financial markets, the sections covering the history of the stock markets only touch upon American exchanges - American Stock Exchange (AMEX), New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), and National Association of Security Dealers Automated Quotations system (NASDAQ). - Enh

    There is a joke making the rounds online that describes how many of us view word problems. It goes something like this, "If you have 4 pencils and I have 7 apples, how many pancakes will fit on the roof?" If this describes you or your student, then let me tell you about this great resource.

    Beginning with the foundational information of how to work word problems, each chapter then provides explanations of the differing types of word problems. Examples follow with detailed solutions. An additional 65 word problems are found at the end of the book (with answers) to provide more practice in all of the skill areas. The algebraic word problem skills covered include numbers; time, rate and distance; mixtures; coins; age; levers; finance; work; plane geometric figures; digits; solutions using two unknowns and quadratics. This practical resource will de-mystify pesky word problems in your student's math book, provide standardized testing preparation or provide supplemental practice for the Life of Fred curriculum.
